Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but for many, it's a necessary step in maintaining their oral health. Wisdom teeth, (also known as "third molars") can cause pain, crowding - and even decay and infection, if not removed. While treatment varies from patient to patient, wisdom tooth dentist, Dr. Narkhede typically suggests that patients in their late teens or early twenties undergo this common surgery.
Our office is equipped with the best dental technologies to give you a speedy and comfortable wisdom teeth surgery.
Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Dr. Narkhede uses cutting-edge imaging tools to determine if your wisdom teeth need to be pulled out. If he finds that your wisdom teeth are erupting at an angle, this can have a negative effect on the bite. This placement can also force food particles to become trapped in hard-to-reach areas, which can lead to damaging decay down the line.
Having wisdom teeth removed is an important step in keeping smiles healthy, straight, and decay-free!
How Much Does Wisdom Teeth Removal Cost?
Wisdom tooth extraction cost varies from patient-to-patient and depends upon a number of factors, including the placement of the third molars and the number that requires extraction.
Dr. Narkhede is committed to providing top-notch dental care at manageable prices. That's why our Lake Forest office works with nearly a dozen different insurance carriers that cover wisdom teeth surgery. We also accept 0% financing plans through third-party lender, CareCredit®.
